Summerhill is a superb, luxury three bedroom cottage dating back to the late 1800s. It is situated in a quiet rural location on the outskirts of St Andrews yet is only a 5 minute drive from the centre of this bustling town. The 3rd hole of the Duke's course is only across the road and with open fields to the rear the property commands stunning views of the Eden estuary with the Grampian mountains in the distance. The cottage has recently undergone a complete refurbishment to provide a modern,stunning, comfortable setting and it has been impeccably decorated for a truly exceptional stay.
There is nowhere quite like St Andrews. It has world renowned golf courses, miles and miles of sandy beaches, fabulous coastal walks, world-class restaurants and the history of being an esteemed University town. There is something for everybody here.
There are about 30 golf courses within 15 miles. The restaurants in the town are numerous and of excellent quality. Similarly excellent quality is to be found amongst the local shops, with a range of independent boutiques and artisan traders selling unique labels and fresh local produce from St Andrews and the surrounding area. There are music and art festivals held locally during the year.
St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his saltire cross for her flag. Before the Reformation, the town was the centre of religious life in medieval Scotland, with the bishops wielding great influence over both church and state. St Andrews is also famous as a place of learning. The university, founded in 1410-11, is the third oldest in Britain.
For many visitors, though, it's a game that draws them here, for St Andrews is the home of golf, the sport having been played here for some 600 years. The Old Course is arguably the most famous golf course in the world, and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still the ruling body for the rules of golf. Fittingly, the Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005, 2010 and 2015. The next staging of the Open in St Andrews is set for 2021, be sure to book your accommodation early.
There are 7 fabulous golf courses within the town and many Championship Links courses in neighbouring villages.
St Andrews is a town designed for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore – on foot – and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.
There are some ancient historic buildings to explore (the Castle and Cathedral are must-sees), museums (including the British Golf Museum), as well as the stunning beaches with all they have to offer and the pier - spectacular for a walk at sunset.
